Fire crews have been battling a blaze at the Budgens supermarket in Holt tonight which appears to have destroyed the building.

Flames ripped through the store, in Kerridge Way, and plumes of black smoke above the town could be seen from miles away.

Police told people to avoid the area and to close doors and windows as hundreds of people gathered to watch in disbelief, posting photos on social media.

Eight crews from Holt, Sheringham, Cromer, Fakenham, Wells, Aylsham, Reepham and Mundesley attended to try to fight the blaze, which appears to have destroyed the roof and much of the building of the CT Baker Budgens store.

The fire was first reported just after 9pm and it is believed that all the staff would have left the store after it closed earlier in the evening.
